Countdown to the end of March…

We are on our countdown to take-off from Gulf Shores, Alabama, soon heading out for our summer gig at a COE park. More on that when we get moved and life arises!  Totally beyond excited!! We continue to be content in this coastal region and days and weeks have gone fast. Both of us managing…

Holidays over…onto 2016!

December…we survived the festivities. We saw reminders of Santa here and there.  Trees made from crab pots at the weekly farmer’s market! There were the lighted parades, on sea and land! Many floats gearing us up for the upcoming Mardi Gras…some were even throwing the beads! There were days lounging while working out some gift…

Thanksgiving, to the start of Advent!

There are still a few Monarch stragglers…and I wonder each time I notice one, “Will they miss the migration and be too late?!”  I sure hope not! The beach continues to be our escape from the RV park.  And we both have to say this has been our best Fall here in Alabama yet. Mr….

One month later…Tupelo to Gulf Shores!

The first week of November, 2015 and already we’ve spent numerous hours with our feet dug in the white sand, under an umbrella, yakking with the locals, and mesmerized by the waves. Pelicans, dolphins, an occasional shark, stingrays, and plenty of other marine life to keep us captivated. Even warm enough to get in and…

Bye Bye Gulf Shores! Off to western AL!

We got the green light and it was time to prep, say good-byes, and hit the highway! First up, good-byes to our friends Tom and Madelyn who spent a month in our park. They were the icing on the cake to our last month, not to forget their niece and husband, Angie and Jeff, tickling…

One month later…on our countdown in LA, lower AL!

We are on our countdown to the northerly migration and time to say good-bye to the Gulf beach! March 1, sooner or later we are out of here! But one last chance to share this past month’s doings! First off….a trip to Pensacola to pick up my sis! She was gifted a plane ticket at…

Six months later…we got some FAMILY time!!!

Passing time still in Gulf Shores…no complaints, as this coastal life continues to grow on us. Some might say we’re just snowbirds now as seems if we’re not in the Midwest, we’re in southern AL running for the beach! Like gulls waiting for our next meal, this has worked for us right now. We missed…

Ten days into the New Year, 2015!

Because I’m happy Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof Because I’m happy……… Camp “Happy” Sands is part of the Gulf National Seashore in Perdido Key and made for a HAPPY day full of sunshine and cool temps in the 50s. The ole’ geezer pass passed us through free of charge…

It’s December….still in (Gulf Shores, AL)

We watch the temps at home in IL and IN!  And I read the blog post reporting temps in ND from dear Jane (23 below, minus wind chill)! And now I’m sitting here trying to remember being frigid cold, wrapped up, cashmere and wool socks!  It’s really very ,VERY ODD to me this year! You…

Took off a little late today…destination Farmer’s Market didn’t happen. Plenty of Saturdays for that! “Let’s ride up to the Bon Secour NWR since the weather was so ideal, I asked Mr. Jer?” “I’ll pack a lunch, we’ll gather some more Christmas gift findings for my artsy gifts in my head, and just take in this fine…
